    I have been working at Boston Scientific full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Excellent mission. Thoughtful orientation and onboarding process. Always thinking about improving the quality of life and saving lives of patients. Good Work/life balance. You can get involved in as much or as little extra projects for your development as you want.

    Cons

    Can't think of any true negatives. Maple Grove cafeteria needs an upgrade - add vegetarian/vegan options, more fresh vegetables, etc.

    Advice to Management

    Keep stressing the importance of working hard and sharing knowledge. Never stop innovating.

    Pros

    Working in MN with HQ in Boston makes it feel very relaxed, not very corporate. Strong values, intellectually stimulating all around, great people

    Cons

    The cafeteria is expensive, and the campus is very spread out.

    Pros

    Culture is focused on patient care and strives towards it with honesty. Division aims to support of good work/life balance and flexibility, and many can take strong advantage, especially regarding at-work time. Local team is driven towards mission with little politics or infighting. Benefits are strong, including an environment that seeks to continuously improve the space, services, and perks.

    Cons

    Difficult to maintain work/life balance in the face of project realities, and working within a heavily regulated industry is a challenge (especially as we're adjacent to fast moving tech).

    Advice to Management

    Take care with what gets put on the plate, continue to value and invest in culture, strive to keep & grow talented employees, and find ways to give them motivating and aligned projects as they sacrifice to deliver on your promises.
